Chris Bengel is a trending sports writer for CBS sports and he just covered the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship being held at Howey-in-the-Hills, at Mission Inn Resort in Florida.
Bengel noted that the “Presidents Cup was taking place over the weekend, but Tiger Woods had a more important job,” and that was “serving as the caddy for his son, Charlie Woods, who shot a career best 68 (4-under final round) in the Junior National Golf Championship.
As any sports writer knows there is something special writing about a young golfer who appears to have set a goal for himself following in his father’s footsteps.
Golfweek’s Cameron Jourddan noted, “Charlie’s career-best finish tied him for fourth place in the boys 12-13 division.”
“Dad told me to stay patient. I just played steady golf,” Charlie told Jourddan.
The golfing world loves to see young golfers following in their father’s footsteps and several tournaments this past year Charlie displayed similar mannerisms to his legendary father.
Charlie in comments about his tournament experience noted, “that was awesome, I mean I couldn’t have done it without him, making reference about his dad.
“Some shots I would have been so off, but he steered me on the right course,” Charlie noted.
Charlie played steady golf and focused on each shot, he didn’t look too far ahead and just stayed in the game.
Composure will give Charlie a competitive edge. He definitely has talent that’s only going to get better.
